A most excellent adventure.

So now it’s time to get as much possible done before the trip starts. Let’s see, current passport, enough Euros to last me until I get to a bank, bring the melatonin, try to get a window seat on the flight …

I have no illusions that a very difficult task lies ahead. The software package is supposed to be “brain-dead simple,” and allow someone to get up and running in five minutes. Well, sometimes it seems like it takes five minutes just for my computer to boot up! And we have no control over how Microsoft and Apple implement their operating system for things like installation. The package has to work with Mac and Windows (XP and Vista), so I have to test on at least three computers, and everything has to be obvious enough that even a technophobic guitarist wouldn’t feel out of place. And those templates … they need to cover musicians who like rock, jazz, country, dance, fusion, chill … and they need to be convincing. And the Quick Starts have no room for error; there can’t be anything that discourages a guitarist from partaking of what Live and Guitar Rig have to offer. Yes, much to do … thankfully, the people at the various German partners lean toward the brainiac end of the scale, so I have a pretty sterling safety net.

In the immortal words of Bill and Ted, this is turning into a most excellent adventure …
